I saw this whole tour, this was one of the weaker nights. the next night was pretty good. I thought the real hot nights were Augusta, Hartford, and Syracuse. I liked Richmond a lot too but am probably in the minority. Great transfer, weak show with a few decent moments. And no it had nothing to do with Weir's birthday, some of the things these kids say on here are ridiculous. No, the real reason is unfortunately Garcia was in very bad shape that year and it was a pretty inconsistent year. 1984 gets a bad rap, I saw most of the shows they did that year and 20-25 of them were scorching hot - the Fall shows I just mentioned, the Greeks, some of the summer shows like Merriweather, Saratoga, Indianapolis, Alpine, Hampton and Philly in the Spring, Red Rocks, the BCT run - but it was inconsistent, unlike 1983 and 1985 that were solid all the way through.

Subject: Nice 1st Set
Nine songs in both sets not including Drumz & Space, so they clearly aren't "mailing it in." Some sloppiness and mediocre intensity level, but fun setlist with some high points throughout. Solid renditions of West L.A., Brother Esau, Brown-Eyed...if you're into that kind of thing (which I am). 3.0-star Swami rating.

As always, Charlie did a great job with the tapes; unfortunately, the Grateful Dead did not show up on 10/17/84; some other Alien semi-pro musical ensemble playing their instruments did. This is a pretty bad show. Healy screws around with the delay pedal too much, Bob, Jerry and Brent struggle with the vocals all night, and there are a number of places where Jerry is clearly not listening to his compadres (to wit, Slipknot!). Plus, you get Bobby flubbing the lyrics on Truckin' (of course). The only thing I found remotely intriguing about this set was the last 3 minutes of Terrapin. I think the boys had too much of a good time the night before celebrating Bobby's birthday and should have called in sick.
